In this case definitely for sport. More time to hunt when they don't have to eat them, clean themselves and contemplate if it was a fast-food-, home-cooked-, or gourmet-mouse....
My observations over the years are barns mouse free, when cats are fed there, and hunting outside for gifts. Somehow the mouse population knows when there are active cats around and leave. My barn-momma-cats would hunt inside for a couple of days, then go to work outside due to lack of prey. I had one bring a very dead, stiff, flat rat once, making the most disgusted face while carrying it, cause she couldn't find anything for her babies who were in "mousing school".
